The Exquisite Corpse
The Exquisite Corpse is an event organized by Tevere Art Gallery (TAG) and by the artist and curator Virginia Zeqireya
TAG is a new exhibition centre in Rome, a testing ground where arts interact to create unique events in the city.
During these monthly encounters, the gallery wants to be an empty drawing board that invites different creative minds to express themselves. Just as in the surrealist pastime Le cadaver exquis, in which artists used to create fortuitous compositions, literary or figurative works, the gallery wants to devolve itself upon chance and collective creation.
We invite therefore artists of any age, using any art form, from all parts of the community and the world to leave a sign of their creativity at the gallery. The gallery will not provide thematic or technical indications: we want to give life to a unique, heterogeneous and stimulating experience, new and different every month.
The event wants to highlight a new concept of exhibition centre as a place where sculpture, painting, video, photography, performance and art installations can meet without rules, a free expression of the creative flair of the authors. A gallery that enable artists to meet each other, and the public to be part of the event interacting with the artists during the day.
